This special cake didn’t get its name from the ingredients, the name came from the resemblance to
the rings in a tree when you cut into it. And once you bite into this soft and flavorful cake, you will understand why everyone who tries it loves this “König der Kuchen, Kuchen der Könige“. Sadly, unlike most cake recipes, a real German Baumkuchen, made in the traditional style and form on a spit, is almost impossible to replicate at home. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy delicous Baumkuchen at home! See the video of it being made for the Food Network Show that Lutz was featured on. Available in a single ring or a 3 ring cake that weighs about 1 pound.
